What is a Post Type?

WordPress enables you to publish multiple types of content or “post types”. A page is also a type of post in WordPress. However, it’s primarily static.

More About Post Types

Since WordPress was initially designed to be a blogging platform, it’s built around the idea of posts. Pages in WordPress are simply another post type with different layouts and characteristics.

WordPress can enable you to set up several custom post types, depending on your needs. If you use an e-commerce plugin that allows you to publish products, those also belong to a custom post type.

Dividing different kinds of content into unique categories makes it easier to organize and publish new entries.

You can manually set up custom post types in WordPress by using custom code. However, several plugins can also help you set up custom post types without coding.
